SFH Kinetic Massage-Certification Program
|Mon – Wed||Sep 19–21, 2022||9am – 5pm|
Combining joint movement with precise pressure allocation maximizes muscle therapy with this 3-dimensional execution.
What is SFH Kinetic Massage?
Treat your clients’ joints through their clothes. No need to drape or to work with oil or gel. The perfect modality for Clinical, Sports Massage Therapists and Manual Osteopaths. Kinetic massage science is geared to relieve joint pain, and joint inflammation while increasing joint flexibility. Muscle tissue manipulation without including its articulations can no longer be ignored. Treat the body as a whole while focusing on your client’s joint mobility, and the supporting muscles’ tone.
The typical range of movement has become restricted in all planes. The human body was born to move and craves a full range of motion. Access to muscles, joints, and muscle junction is best achieved with a dynamic approach. The Kinetic Massage Certification will teach you skills to get your clients to move the way their bodies were intended to while preserving your body mechanics. By understanding anatomy and correct positioning, your clients will return with the confidence that they are secure and achieving results.
Optimally treat stubborn conditions with Kinetic Massage techniques and approaches. Your clients will feel the difference.

What do therapists say about this course:
I attended the Oncology Soft Tissue Manipulation Level 2 course in March 2020. It is a course that every massage therapist should take as 1 in 2 people are diagnosed with cancer sometime in their life. I wanted to be certified because I want to be able to continue treating all my clients in the event that they have cancer and know when to refer out. The course gave me the confidence to treat clients and the knowledge of what further information I need to collect to best treat clients safely. I appreciate the opportunity to practice the health intake process. I have used the information that I have gained in the course already in practice. The course has made me a more rounded, better therapist. There are principles that I have incorporated within my regular, non-oncology clientele. My regular clients have stated that how much more relaxed they have felt. The instructor Shirley is very approachable and knowledgeable about the subject. She made the content easy to understand. I no longer feel intimidated to help clients who have or have had cancer. Thanks, SFH and Shirley!
